Becoming financially independent is not only about strategy, strategy and strategy. A big part of it is about developing the right mindset as well as the good skills.
In this article I’ll list the 4 most important skills that you have to develop if you want to be financially independent.
1. The ability to think creatively and solve problems
People who think creatively add a lot of value to this world. Being creative means coming up with new ideas that can bring valuable outcome. If one Monday you go into your boss’s office and say:
“I’ve been thinking over the week-end and I have new ideas for this company to save money .” Then you can tell him that you will take 5,10 or 15% of what the company has saved thanks to you. In this case your creativity brings you some cash.
Keep in mind that every breakthrough that the world knows today started with people who were creative.
2. The ability to communicate more effectively
Having great ideas is wonderful but if no one wants to listen to you, you won’t go very far. Communicating more effectively means knowing how to convince people. It’s all about the way you speak, your body language and the way you behave. If you master that I can assure you that the quality of your life will improve dramatically!
3. The ability to market an idea or concept to bring it to reality
We have a lot of ideas every day and some good one, but how can you convince people that those will actually work?

Your audience must be enthusiastic for both your idea and the way you would proceed to make it a real.
